Wings Over Scotland


Posted on November 23, 2021 by

I’ve just remembered that I meant to leave this pinned to the front page when I shut Wings down as a blog, so here it is. It’s just a short one.

I am willing to bet anyone in the UK any amount of money of their choosing that there will NOT be a second independence referendum in Scotland while Nicola Sturgeon is First Minister.

If you still believe she’ll deliver one, now’s your chance to demonstrate your faith in public AND get yourself some free cash. (It’s a matter of public record that I’ve never failed to pay up on a losing wager.)

So come on, SNP loyalists and true believers, let’s see you. Put your name and the amount you want to bet in the comments below* and let’s find out how much you really trust her. This is an entirely genuine, serious offer and remains open to anyone** until such times as Nicola Sturgeon stands down as First Minister, even if that’s 20 years from now. Any amount you like. I’m waiting keenly for your responses.

    20 to “FREE MONEY OFFER”

    1. John McDonald says:

      You’re on. £100.

      Hurry up Nicola, I’m a pensioner…

    2. Alison Brown says:

      £20 – when I lose (as I will!) please use it towards your polls. Actually are you going to do a fund raiser for your polls? Will donate.

    3. Margaret Lindsay says:

      Foregone conclusion that I’d lose, but would be more than happy to contribute to the polling. You’re bloody missed you ken.

    4. James Dewar says:

      £20, but I also don’t believe Nicola Sturgeon will come anywhere close to securing a second independence referendum. So I’m viewing this as a Wings crowdfunded

    5. Rev. Stuart Campbell says:

      Anyone who wants to contribute to our ongoing polling work can do so via the normal donations page 🙂

    6. Brian Doonthetoon says:

      C’mon peeps.

      Read what Rev Stu posted above.


      The lure has been fixed to the line to hook all those acolytes who believe in the cult of Nikkla. It’s up to them to put their money where their online mouth is.

      It’s not up to us to donate via a bet. As Rev Stu types,
      “Anyone who wants to contribute to our ongoing polling work can do so via the normal donations page ? “.

      Let’s see if the acolytes in and outwith the SNP are confident enough. This SHOULD BE front page in (cough) Scotland’s Nikkla Fanzine, and other MSM publications, tomorrow, but will it?

      Therefore, I will place a £10 bet, just for the hell of it, and to prove that SNP MPs and MSPs have no confidence in St Nikkla and that’s why they’re not placing bets here.

    7. Kat says:

      Put me down for £20 I don’t doubt you in the slightest but you can pass it on to any good cause you see fit to donate too

    8. paul says:

      I say,with great dread, all of the nuSNP’s efforts are to have a lacklustre call to armchairs.

      They will then claim there is no appetite for anything more than dependence.

      The reason that they will hesitate to deliver a full coup d’etat is that those funny people, the electorate, might actually confound them.

      I’ll stick a tenner on it, for fun.

      If I’m wrong, we will all be so glad, I will be forgiven.

    9. Al-Stuart says:

      I bet 30 shillings.

      That is all the bovine bloated is worth.

      It’s also the amount that CosyFeet Pete, the permanent SNP resident in the PALACE of Westminster sold us out for.

      Rev, once I would have hoped you were wrong on this, but there is far too much evidence that Sturgeon is a fake first minister, overpromoted and ruinous to Scotland.

      Stuart, this is a classic post. You are bowing out in style my friend.

      This post is pitch perfect for the Sturgeonite IndyDenying lobotomy jobbies.

      One day, my friend, free speech and a decent culture will return to Scotland. Until then, I will miss Wings.

      Your literary epitaph?

      You were, in fact, correct.

      Sturgeon is, in fact, a Betrayer…

      Hence the 30 old shilling bet. That really is all the Dreghorn Dirker is worth…

    10. Wendy Wood says:

      I’m betting £20 which I’m kissing goodbye to right now! I’ve actually never placed a bet before, and probably never will again.

    11. Clavie Cheil says:

      Well since I will deid by the time the Transgender Cultist get their shit together and leave Scotland I wont be alive to pay out when the Referendum isn’t called. I will just leave something in my last Will to Wings – how does that sound?

    12. Shug says:

      I will have 30 pieces of silver

    13. Southernbystander says:

      You’re on.


    14. Wee Crabbit Bas says:

      1 Euro. At today’s value, natch.

    15. Masslass says:

      I can afford to lose my old plugged nickel otherwise known as a 5cents here in the US. Bet on

    16. Bob Mack says:

      I’ve saved some time by just burning a £10 note.

      It still has a better chance of again being used than there is of a referen(dumb).

    17. mike cassidy says:

      Surprising lack of rush to clean you out

      Given NS has announced there will be a referendum before the end of 2023

      Looks like even the Sturgeonistas no longer have the faith

    18. Brian Doonthetoon says:

      Hud a bra’ night out in The Woodlands Hotel, at the Dundee Alba St Andrew’s Day celebration tonight.

      Had a blether with Brian Topping from Fraserburgh, having a covid-delayed break in Dundee with his wife. Met up with a number of Team Yes Bus members and had a very illuminating blether with Stevie from the Crossgate Centre. When the SNP $h!† hits the fan, via the ECHR, we’d better all have brollies.
      And to cap it all, I won a bottle of Cairn O’ Mohr raspberry wine (13.3%) in the raffle.

      A fine night!

    19. Brian Doonthetoon says:

      Apologies Rev – posted in the wrong tab. Delete at your leisure.

    20. Alastair Bryan says:

      Hope you come back into the fight with wings I am sick of the Uncle Tom indy sites that suck up to Sturgeon and black you when they here the truth. They betrayal us as much as the Unionists.
